This past weekend I stayed for two nights in cabin 9. When we got there the door was locked and I had to call the emergency number to get in and the office was closed. This was at 4:00pm on Friday afternoon. The people who were staying next door to us knew the owner and were able to get him to come over and even he thought that door should have been unlocked. Either way we got in (thankfully because it took the emergency number people 3 hours to return my call). Anyway, once we got in the cabin I can understand why it was locked. They probably hadn't finished cleaning it. There were some dishes in the sink and the floor looked like it hadn't been swept or washed in a week. No worries, I thought I could still make the best of it until I saw the shower. There was mold/mildew lining the entire lower section of the walls of the shower. Neither my husband or I wanted to actually go in there but we had to shower because we were going to a wedding on Saturday afternoon. Needless to say, we actually considered driving back to IL Saturday night in lieu of spending another night in the cabin and forego the money we had already spent. Believe me, it was not worth the $340 we spent for two nights. I might have done better at a Motel 6.
There were other people from the wedding attendees who some said they had a pretty decent room and others said their room was not up to par either. The pictures look very nice on the website, but do not provide the "true picture" of what they are inside.
Overall, the area was beautiful and you do have the lake right across the street, but it was hardly worth the money. I would not stay here again and recommend that if you are truly interested in staying here, you should go there in person and view the cottages prior to booking them. Then perhaps you won't be as disappointed as I was.
I heard that Cottage 7 had been repainted and new furniture put in so start there!
